    Interview

    Not sure how they choose applicants, but it's not based on education & experience. I've found several employees with similar degrees through LinkedIn, but with far less experience. Very cold and impersonal.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Esri in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in the Fall of 2016 and then had an email in March of 2017 to setup a Skype interview. It was basic talking about me and a few technical questions. I don't think I did well with the questions but the interviewer was nice. A month later in April I received an email to see if I was still interested, but I had already accepted an offer for a different company by that point so I declined.

    Database Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Esri (Charlotte, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    4 interviews (over month long process)
    First interview- phone screening with an employee in the Charlotte office (asked me problem-solving puzzle questions, questions about my resume, why I wanted this job, what I knew about this job, and about the hiring/interview process. This was about 30-45 mins long.
    2. I was passed on to the technical interview which was pretty intense not going to lie. I was interviewed by an employee at the Charlotte office who had the same job title as me. You are allowed to google and have ArcGIS open. They will as you questions you won't know, the key is figuring them out.
    3. I was passed onto HR in Redlands for a regular phone interview with an HR representative. She ask things like "how do you handle angry customers" "what do you know about this job" "what do you know about ESRI" and so on...
    4. I was asked to go in for an 8-hour interview onsite at the Charlotte office. You will be prepared as long as you investigate, prepare, and are ready for different types of interviews. They are fairly laid back interviews (especially the technical ones), lunch is an interview too but more of about the location and what Charlotte has to offer. A good tip I would offer up is: pay attention to the questions asked in the technical phone interview. Research these and be ready to discuss these in more detail. It really helps!! Also be prepared for a written and puzzle interview...These are really fun and makes you think outside the box. Overall, I had a great experience with ESRI. The wait to find out if I got the job or not almost killed me (background check, calling references, the whole 9 yards). But it was well worth the wait! Be patient!
